Poke Bowl Invasion

There is an indisputable trend going on in Madrid for the last months, I am talking about Poke. I first heard about it a year ago, I was told that hawaiian surfers were very fond about it and I was surprised by its simplicity and freshness. Poke is all about raw fish cut in dices with vegetables and usually a basis of rice served in a bowl with a great variety of other possible ingredients like vegetables and sauces.

This is Poke!

The two restaurants that introduced me to this hawaiian gastronomy were La Pagoda, a really nice Asian restaurant close to Bernabéu and lately I found it too in Nubel, the wonderful Reina Sofia restaurant.

However, now it seems that it has become the latest trend, and you are no one if you haven’t found your Poke favourite restaurant, probably because it is quite cheap and healthy. 

Some of the pokes you can find in II Poke

During the past months, I’ve seen it everywhere. If you are not confident with the concept, I will introduce to this new fashion by saying that if you are fond of sashimi and ceviche, you will become a fan of Poke. 

My best recommendation would be to go to II Poke, near to Alonso Martinez where apart from the Poke-menu you can prepare Poke to your very own style.
First you decide the basis: rice, quinoa, kale or bamboo hawaian rice.
Second you choose the fish: Salmon, tuna, shrimp 
Third you choose between vegetables, seaweeds or fruits 

Finally, you can eat it at the restaurant or have it delivered to your address.

Hope you like it!!

Tapan - Japanese Tapas Bar in Chamberí

If you fancy authentic Japanese food and do not want to spend big sums I have a good tip for you: Tapan in Chamberi, 46 Bretón de los Herreros. It is a real Japanese Tapas Bar owned and managed by two Japanese young cooks who had the good idea to merge Spanish traditions, such as “menu del día” and “tapas” with Japanese gastronomy.

Tuk tuk and Deliveroo’s special discount for My little Madrid readers

I have recently discovered the only Asian street food restaurant that exists in Madrid: TUK TUK Street food   It has been a great surprise because they have a nice selection of food from Thailand, Hong Kong and Singapour. In fact, when you go there you get a mild feeling of travelling to Asia, where it is quite common to eat all kind of different foods in the streets: tasty, cheap and all in small bites.
